As a mecca for aviation, Oshkosh is an important venue for manufacturers to introduce and showcase their new products. This year was no exception. Light-sport aircraft (LSAs) dominated the news at EAA AirVenture 2007, and Cessna and Cirrus both introduced their efforts into the LSA arena. Cessna had on display its aluminum Model 162 SkyCatcher in its final (albeit non-flying) form. Cirrus displayed its composite FK-14, manufactured by Fk Light Planes of Speyer, Germany. They are both interesting aircraft; however, when it comes to LSA success in the marketplace, aircraft durability and product support, I am putting my money on Cessna.
